Come to know: What a RSS Feed is?


RSS widely for “Really Simple Syndication”. Typically, RSS feeds are a process for websites to share out the new content as it come offered.


Consider an RSS feed as a file or file cabinet what contains a blog or website's most recent posts. Through subscribing to a ‘site's feed’ in Google Reader, anybody will automatically be notified when those website or blogs contains new posts or entries. For avoiding the hassles of checking sites frequently for updates, RSS feeds carry your favorite websites to you. It is like a website or blog post container.
